I start saving new recipes on my phone, researching different restaurants, and expanding my shopping horizons at the grocery store. I imagine it relates to some ancient hardwiring in my body as winter approaches - at least that's what I'm tell myself as I'm stuffing my face. I'm already thinking about the hot meals I'm going to be preparing in the cold of winter, and wanted some simple felt placemats to pair those meals with.

Ahh, autumn. You make me want to light bonfires in my backyard, start drinking cocoa on the daily, and cozy up in anything warm and snuggly.

5-Minute DIY! Update any Pillow with Floral Patches

It's strange to see 90s styles coming back to life, but I'm loving the nostalgia it brings and how it's evolved. Patches are back in style but not just the novelty ones you iron onto jean jackets. Today's patches come in so many different styles, including intricate floral applique patches that are often used around clothing necklines. Instead of using those patches for their intended use, I thought they'd be perfect for outlining the corners of a pillow! This project was so easy to make that I finished in just 5 minutes.

How to: Give Your Space a Scandinavian- Inspired Vibe with Removable Wallpaper

Not too long ago, we gave our family room a mini makeover. But it didn't feel quite like us or flow well with the rest of our home. We love all things Scandinavian-inspired and I knew that I wanted the space to feel cozy and welcoming. Before, our space felt a bit blunt and loud. Our geometric painted wall was one of the first things that caught your eye in the space and I wanted to finally get rid of the turquoise color, which was never...
